Saputo started back in 1954 after the family immigrated from Sicily. From one store to a multi-billion dollars operation in less than 50 years. Since the first store, the business has been in the family and operated by the family.
Saputo produces, distributes and markets a wide range of diary products. Saputo employs just over 10 thousands people in 47 plants. As a Canadian, chances are, you are already using one of their products without knowing it. Saputo produces 32% of the cheese and 35% of the milk in Canada. In the past years, Saputo has been acquiring businesses outside of Canada to expend its business.
